is the father of two children, Makonnen and Addis. He was born in Jamaica, and educated there and in New York. His most recent book is the poetry collection Providential (2015), which Eileen Myles describes as "one of the most lucid and telling poetry books of this exact time." Other work includes the novella The Girl With the Golden Shoes (2007) — "a nearly perfect moral fable" in the words of Russell Banks — and the national bestselling novel Waiting in Vain, a Critic’s Choice Selection of the Washington Post, which hails it as "a clear redefinition of the Caribbean novel — in which the discourses of post-colonialism have been usurped by the creative assurance of reggae's aesthetic ..." Colin is the editor of the fiction anthologies Iron Balloons (2006) and Kingston Noir (2012), and coeditor of the poetry anthology So Much Things to Say (2010).
